Paper Abstract

Using a forced-mode composite right/left-handed resonator, we designed and proved a permittivity sensor at the microwave regime. We use this sensor to measure humidity percent of honey and potatoes. The sensor resonant frequency can be modified without altering its physical length. With this characteristic a bigger frequency bandwidth can be covered. In addition to that, the second and third mode can also be used for measuring increasing even more the sensor frequency bandwidth. It can be clearly appreciated that one mode is magnetic and the other electric. Not only they differ in their amplitude but also in their quality factor. By moving the position that forces the modes, the first mode frequency value will increase while the second one will decrease. This will happen until the modes meet each other and then they will exchange places.
